The Owner Says

Nestled amongst the pine trees, these family friendly canvas tents are the perfect place for family holidays!

These tents include an indoor living/dining area, with a fully kitted out kitchenette and a BBQ outdoors. Newly refurbished shower block facilities are a short stroll away.

Sleeping quarters are: one double bedroom, and a second bedroom with two single beds.

Please bring your own bedding or hire these as an additional extra.

The large wooden terrace with its awning is the perfect setting for al fresco dining any time of the day, whilst admiring those beautiful pine trees!

With pitches set amongst pine trees overlooking the titular lake or offering ocean views, Lac de Carcans is an ideal place to pitch up.

Calm and family friendly with wonderful facilities, the site offers new refurbished shower blocks, free Wi-Fi and a wealth of onsite activities including volleyball, petanque and tennis courts.

Besides the onsite swimming pool, the huge fresh-water lake offers plenty of aquatic adventure from water skiing to surfing, canoeing and kayaking.

A food truck (July & August) serves up homemade pizzas which you can enjoy whilst relaxing on the wooden terrace or you can take it away to enjoy by your pitch.

Order your bread and pastries the night before, so you can wake up to freshly baked bread and breakfast treats – the perfect way to kick start your day!

During the key summer months the campsite hosts a Kids Club with a range of craft and game activities, or enjoy a fun evening watching a magic show or the open-air film night.

The Atlantic Ocean is a short bike ride through the pine forest, these beautiful long and sandy beaches are a great place to enjoy be it in the rolling waves or whilst exploring the sand dunes. Bikes can be hired on site.

The campsite offers free Wifi and there is also an on site computer which is available for guests to use.

Video Tour


There are lots of watersports (and swimming) on offer at the lake, which is the largest freshwater lake in France, or make your way to the beach, for surfing, bodyboarding or general beach-lolling. It's deadly flat and everywhere is easily explorable by bike, connected by footpaths and cycle paths. Lake-side Maubisson village is about 2km south of the site, while the resort of Carcans-Plage is an easy bike-ride away. Fishing is permitted in nearby Carcans-Hourtin lake.

Food & Drink

You can order morning bread and croissants at the campsite and there's an onsite food truck with terrace during July & Aug. Off the site, most of the restaurants in Maubisson and Carcans-Plage are pretty ordinary, although the Bistrot de Cochons (0033 5 5603 1561) in Lacanau-Ocean is pretty good. There's a grocery store 100m from the campsite.
